Zucchini Cake

Printable Recipe

I found this recipe on the old Taste of Home message boards. I've actually had it for years, but I just now made it. Using butter rather than oil, gives the cake very nice flavor.

1 (18  1/2 oz) pkg yellow cake mix
3 eggs
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup water
1  1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups shrd zucchini

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 9x13" pan.

Combine cake mix, eggs butter, water, cinnamon and vanilla  in a large bowl with an electric mixer. Beat on low speed for 4 minutes. Stir in the shrd zucchini and pour into prepared pan. Bake 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool and frost. Store the cake in the refrigerator.

Cream Cheese Frosting
2 (3-oz) pkgs cream cheese, softened
5 tbsp butter, softened
3 cups pwd sugar
1 tsp vanilla

Beat the cream cheese and butter together until smooth. Beat in the pwd sugar and vanilla.
